Once More: Temporary Warming Pause

Do you see? They're reluctantly admitting that it's ‘cooling off’; they're admitting that global warming (as they define it) IS NOT HAPPENING and HAS NOT HAPPENED in nearly a decade! It’s just that they’re still trying to hold on to the concept as being legitimate—that is: Man’s CO2 emissions are driving up world temperatures, which is NOT TRUE!

I've written extensively on this blog about 'climate revisionism' and the La-Nina-El-Nino effects. So, they predictably make efforts in the article to explain why global warming is being covered up by these effects, but they ignore SO MANY other climate variables (including, paradoxically, the Sun) that it’s laughable.

These people truly are a bunch of clowns.

Global Warming: On Hold?

Earth's climate continues to confound scientists. Following a 30-year trend of warming, global temperatures have flatlined since 2001 despite rising greenhouse gas concentrations, and a heat surplus that should have cranked up the planetary thermostat.

"This is nothing like anything we've seen since 1950," Kyle Swanson of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee said. "Cooling events since then had firm causes, like eruptions or large-magnitude La Ninas. This current cooling doesn't have one."

Instead, Swanson and colleague Anastasios Tsonis think a series of climate processes have aligned, conspiring to chill the climate. In 1997 and 1998, the tropical Pacific Ocean warmed rapidly in what Swanson called a "super El Nino event." It sent a shock wave through the oceans and atmosphere, jarring their circulation patterns into unison.
